Purchase A Brick For The Parker-Gray Memorial Walkway

The City of Alexandria and the Alexandria African American Hall of Fame invite the public to purchase personalized engraved bricks to add to the Parker-Gray Memorial Walkway recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Parker-Gray High School. The walkway is located at the main entrance of the Charles Houston Recreation Center (901 Wythe St.)The project will continue on indefinitely, you may order bricks at anytime. Be mindful that we will do installations in phases.

The school opened in September 1920 at the site of the current recreation center and provided African American children with comprehensive education at a time when segregation and lack of resources, teachers, and facilities threatened what is now understood as a fundamental right of every child.

Visit the Alexandria African American Hall of Fame  to purchase a brick, or email or call 571.217.9951 for more information.
